Report to the Queen from the Treasury Lords on the petition of Sir Bazill Firebrace and others, freighters and owners of the ship William and James, ut supra, p. 1636. In a former case of this kind concerning the Swan pink and her lading (which coming from the Leeward Islands was taken and carried into France) it was ordered by the King in Council that she should be permitted to be brought with her cargo into England and should be admitted to entry on payment of Customs on security that nothing but the cargo from the West Indies should be imported therein. If like lease be granted in the present case the duty on the Portugal wines will come to 2,000l. The Customs Commissioners therefore advise permission on similar security. We do not object thereto.

Same to the Deputy Surveyor General of Crown Lands for a particular of certain houses in Suffolk Street [London], with a view to a lease thereof to Edward Russell, esq., for 99 years in reversion of the terms in being : without fine in consideration of his eminent services to their Majesties.
Prefixing : (a) note of said Russell's petition, as referred Mar. 11 last ; (b) report, dated Mar. 14 last, from William Taylor, Deputy Surveyor General thereon. The late Queen Mother's Trustees granted to John Harvey and Sir John Coell, in trust for the late Earl of St. Albans, all the bailiwick or manor of St. James's for several terms, the last whereof expired at Michaelmas, 1691. By indenture of 23 Sept., 1662, Charles II confirmed the said leases made by the Queen Mother and granted a further term of 29 years from 1691, Michaelmas, in the piece of ground, here petitioned for, called Suffolk Stable Yard, heretofore enclosed with a brick wall and containing about three acres, upon which several tenements are erected now called Suffolk Street. The interest as to this parcel was assigned to the late Earl of Suffolk and by him to divers other persons.
In 1679 the Surveyor General [Sir C. Harbord] made an estimate or survey of the whole manor of St. James's and certified that there were then standing on this ground about 60 houses, whereof the ground rents paid by the improvers were accounted 250. per an., and he then valued 50 of these houses upon the improvement at 20l. per an. each, or 1,000l. above the said ground rent, and the other 10 at 50l. per an., or 500l, above the same, making in all, with the said ground rents, 1,750l. per an.
I have viewed the premises and find them rather fallen than improved since 1679, so that the desired reversion cannot be valued at more than four years' purchase, or 7,000l.
